This mentorship event is part of the AMP (Alpine Mentorship)
program organized by the ACC Calgary Alpine Chair jointly
with ACMG Guide Brent Peters. For level 3 participants the
expectation is that you have previous ice climbing experience
leading WI4 ice. The goal of this event is to refine your ice
climbing technique to make you more comfortable leading
WI4 ice. You already know the correct climbing position but
want to refine your technique and get individual feedback
including how to manage the pump. At the end of the course
you should feel comfortable climbing steep ice and finding
rest positions in difficult terrain.
To sign up for this event, please add yourself to the waiting
list and email Luis Salgado (firstname.lastname@example.org) your
previous experience. Once you are approved, please send
the payment to email@example.com and email Luis the
